Foraging For Comics: The December Image Solicits

THE LOOKING GLASS WARS: HATTER M. #1 (of 4)
written by FRANK BEDDOR & LIZ CAVALIER

Like a violent birth, Royal Bodyguard Hatter Madigan explodes through a puddle on the Champs Elysées from his world in the year 1859, shockingly separated from the future Queen of Wonderland he had been entrusted to protect. Pursued by the police, taunted by nationalistic Frenchmen and challenged by an evil black magician, Hatter must evade the authorities while simultaneously searching for lost princess Alyss!

The myth of Hatter M begins here.


O...kay.

COYOTE, VOL. 2 TP
written by STEVE ENGLEHART

cover by ALAN WEISS

The story of Coyote moves forward fast, as the son of the totem gets past his heartbreak by moving into a swinging singles complex in Las Vegas. Revenge scents in the desert air as he gets a job, working for the mob, which works for the Shadow Cabinet. And he has his first run-in with the Djinn, a Middle eastern crime lord we'll see plenty more of. But best of all, he meets two sisters who will change his life in ways even the Trickster could never imagine.


Do a Google search on "Coyote's Ten Commandments." It's funny.

AGE OF BRONZE #22

"BETRAYAL," Part Three
Trojans attack! In the middle of a victory feast, battle erupts when Paris aims an arrow directly at Menelaus. Only the two Ajaxes stand between Menelaus and death. Then Achilles' fury mounts when he finds the feast started without him. Why don't Agamemnon and Odysseus mind the anger of Achilles?


Achilles is such a fucking drama queen.

NOBLE CAUSES #17
written by JAY FAERBER
art by FRAN BUENO
cover by GABE BRIDWELL

It looks like Celeste is going to earn her title as the Nobles' resident "bad girl," as she continues her affair with the villainous Dawn Blackthorne. Is there more to this couple than meets the eye? Is Celeste playing Dawn, or vice versa?


Ahhh, lesbians. They make everything better.

PvP SKULL PLUSH

Copy to come


That is a-god-damn-dorable.

Witchblade #93 "Artifacts," Part 1 of 2
ARROW: Steven Sadowski and the fallout from the 10th Anniversary!
(W) Ron Marz (P) Stephen Sadowski (I) Andrew Pepoy (Cov) Terry Dodson
Rolling directly out of events of the epic Witchblade 10th Anniversary issue, a seemingly inconsequential statue is stolen from the mysterious man known only as "The Curator." NYPD Detective Sara Pezzini is on the case, but as her investigation deepens, she learns not only the deadly truth behind the goddess statue, but also the long-buried secrets of the Curator himself! The Witchblade revelations continue, with guest pencils by Stephen Sadowski of JSA fame!


So, after 92 issues, she finally puts on a goddamn shirt. Good for her.

Top Cow's Best of Michael Turner
ARROW: Great works from a comics great!
(W) David Wohl, Christina Z and more! (Art) Michael Turner
Top Cow's Best of Michael Turner showcases some of this artistic superstar's early works, establishing Top Cow's flagship characters and his own stellar career! Includes nine full issues, including Witchblade, Tomb Raider and more, plus rare promotional works trading card images, posters, pinups, variant cover images and more!


Must... resist... snark!

That's all this month. Full Solicits are here. There's at least one thing by Jim Mahfood that I didn't feel like cut/pasting. I know how much you gay-cowboy-pudding-eaters like him.

Happy hunting.
